Autumn Carnival half-term fun at RHS Garden Wisley

This October half-term, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is inviting families to discover how the autumn season is celebrated around the world, with a wonderful range of hands-on activities to inspire people of all ages, including an educational autumn trail. Fun half-term activities will take place at RHS Garden Wisley from 23 to 31 October.

Whilst exploring Wisley Garden awash with autumn colour, families can take part in an autumn trail, collecting clues to discover why the leaves are changing colour, which animals hibernate and learn fun facts about autumn celebrations across the world. There’s also a chance to get creative at a craft and planting workshop, enjoy storytelling and join one of the choral workshops held throughout the week.

Don’t miss the autumn circus weekend to launch this fantastic week on 23 and 24 October, with a big top marquee, enthralling performances and the chance to learn some circus skills.

Plus, get tips, tricks and autumn gardening inspiration with Lee Connelly (The Skinny Jean Gardener) who will be hosting his ‘Gardening Spooktacular’ show on 28 and 29 October, providing fun for all the family with the chance to win prizes by taking part in some spooktacular gardening games!

A full list of activities taking place throughout the week is available via RHS Wisley website here.
